FOTD: Tartelette in Bloom Pallet

img_6713

We made it to day five!!! The Tartelette in Bloom pallet is one every girl should have. This is honestly the perfect everyday pallet. I remember earlier this year this pallet is all I reached for. It’s a true neutral pallet that only has three shimmers. Obviously people would automatically reach for the shimmers to put on the lid so I decided to do a full matte eye just to show the versatility. Thank you guys for sticking with me these five days! I hope to get some reviews up soon since I have been using a lot of new products. Full product list is below!

FOTD: Too Faced The Power of Makeup

img_6436

It’s day three loves and today’s look we’re using the Too Faced The Power of Makeup Pallet by NikkieTutorials! I was pretty excited to get my hands on this because I did not own many Too Faced products and we can all agree, Nikkie’s makeup is ALWAYS on point so I knew the pallet would be bomb! The pallet comes with nine eyeshadows, two blushes, one contour color and one highlight. The pallet also came with an eyeshadow primer, loose glitter, a mini mascara and a full liquid eyeliner all for $56! Keep reading to get the details on this look.

Hello Loves!!!!! I’m baaaaack!!! So excited to get back to posting on the blog!! I have missed you guys a ton and I have been dying to play in makeup. Work has finally slowed down (thank the baby) but I’m still on the road. Traveling however, has not stopped me from buying makeup lol.  So to jump back into things I wanted to start with 5 different makeup looks using 5 different eye shadow pallets! Since I am still on the road I don’t have a full set up so……I will only be showing the finished look 😦 But I will be sure to list EVERYTHING I used to achieve each look. First up, Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eye shadow pallet.

Day to Night

Processed with MOLDIV

Hi Loves!!! Today’s post is about  going from a day look to a night look in three easy steps. Before I get into this let’s state the obvious: I’m obsessed with SnapChat filters!!! Now moving on, these pictures were taken on the same day. The picture on the left was my day time look. Smashbox BB water, concealer to highlight, powder to set my face, bronzer to “contour”, brows, mascara, a highlighting powder, and gloss. To get my night time look I only did three things:

1. Applied Kiss lashes in Beyond Natural 03

2. Applied NYC liquid eyeliner (only lined top of eyes)

3. Applied NYX Lingerie liquid lipstick in Honeymoon

That’s it ladies! I didn’t do anything else to my face but blot excess oil and set my face again with powder! Super quick and easy! If you have any questions leave them below. Thanks for reading! Xoxo

 

 

Four Months and No Makeup Post

Hi Loves! I can not believe it’s been four LONG months since I posted on Raia’s World! I am so so sorry 😦 Things have been a whirlwind around me! I could go into the long drawn out story about why I haven’t been posting but I will save you the boring read. My time is not my own these days so I don’t foresee tons of post in my future, but I will try to get mini post out there for you guys throughout the next couple of months. Thank you guys for understanding!

This is my go to look these days. It takes me about 20 minutes to get this look but I truly do love it.

Face:
Tart Timeless Smoothing Primer
NARS All Day Luminous Foundation (apply with fingers)
NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer (highlight under-eye, nose, chin)
Ben Nye Topaz Powder (set highlight)
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish (set whole face)
MAC Refined Golden (bronze cheeks, forehead, nose)
MAC Ambering Rose Blush
Becca Topaz Highlighter
Urban Decay De Slick Setting Spray

Brows:
Urban Decay Brow Beater (New FAV)
MAC Studio Finish Concealer (clean up brows)

Eyes:
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Beauty Supply Store Lashes

Lips:
MAC Dej Loaf Lipglass (perfect nude gloss)

In both these pictures I have the exact same look. I have been skipping eyehsadow and eyeliner. This makes putting on my makeup a lot faster. I also still feel glam with very minimal effort.

Thanks for sticking around loves and being patient with my blog. Be on the look out for more mini post. As always, if you have questions leave them below and thanks for reading! xoxo
